A while ago i had problems rendering AVI movies in MAX 1.2 under windows
95, the machine just bombed out. The patch from the Kinetix page sorted
HOWEVER, i then downloaded a load of updates and plugins from the
kinetix page and 3d cafe and somehow one of them managed to change
some system file so that now avi files cause an error when trying to
render in MAX "Bad AVI class!" etc, and in other avi players (such as
media player) i get an error "mmsystem296 not supported" or something
to that effect. An the other hand Active movie still plays AVI files!!!
Some people have said that NETOOB is the problem, but i have run 3ds MAX
fine since installing netoob a while back. Could it then be the active movie
The thing is that the AVI problem is not due to 3ds MAX but some system

Thanks very much.
